sudan anti-corruption committee orders criminal procedings

The Committee issued a directive yesterday to its state branches to take criminal procedures via the Public Prosecution according to the Empowerment Elimination 2019 Act amended 2020, Counter-Terrorism and Money Laundering 2014 Act and the Criminal Code 1991 amended 2020.

According to the statement, the information relates to acts of burning, robbing, and terrorising unarmed people. “Peacefulness is the sharpest weapon with which to beat violence,” it said, indicating that this information lays the groundwork for completing Sudan’s “democratic transformation”.

Transitional Sovereignity Council member and Deputy Chairman of the Empowerment Elimination, Anti-Corruption, and Funds Recovery Committee, Mohamed El Faki, said that the committee requires the attention of the new government.

“People are still waiting for large files inherited from the defunct regime [to be made public], and much work awaits us. Hope is still there, and so is the will,” he wrote on Facebook on Thursday. He also called for the approval of the Internal Security Act to be accelerated.

He expressed support of the statement about the priorities of Sudan’s new government, given yesterday by Khaled Omar Yousef, the new President of the Council of Ministers and former Deputy Head of the Sudanese Congress Party (SCP). El Faki said they answer the urgent daily needs of the people, and that realisation of justice and reform of security are connected issues.

The Spokesperson of the Empowerment Elimination, Anti-Corruption, and Funds Recovery Committee, Salah Manna, tweeted on Wednesday: “We will pave the way for the new government by dismantling the structure of empowerment and dissolving the defunct party for the benefit of this nation”.
